What Is a Forensic Lawyer?

Benefits of Choosing an ACS Forensic Lawyer-Scientist to Defend You

Attorney Chris Hesse is one of the few lawyers in the entire country—and the only lawyer in West Texas—who has earned the ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist Designation. As a forensic lawyer, he has gained in-depth understanding of the chemistry behind blood alcohol content testing and drug testing, and how those processes impact criminal cases.

Because of this rare expertise, Attorney Chris Hesse brings invaluable skills to the table, giving his clients a significant edge in their case.

The ACS Forensic Chromatology Program

The American Chemistry Society (ACS) is the world’s largest scientific society. Their mission is to “improve people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry.” The ACS Education Committee developed the forensic chromatology program to equip lawyers to “expose invalidated or non-validated science” in the courtroom in order to promote true justice.

As a highly-rated Avvo lawyer with extensive trial experience, Attorney Hesse’s forensic training makes him even more of a formidable force in the courtroom.

To receive the forensic lawyer title, an attorney must complete 140 hours of lab experience and rigorous chromatography training. He or she must also pass a final proficiency and knowledge exam. Attorney Chris Hesse is proud to be able to use his knowledge to serve his clients in such a unique and valuable way.

Put an Expert on Your Side

Here are just a few of the many benefits of hiring a forensic lawyer to defend you:
